Innovation contributes to corporate competitiveness, economic performance and environmental sustainability. In the Internet era, innovation intelligence is transferred across borders and languages at an unprecedented rate, yet the ability to benefit from it seems to become more divergent among different corporations and countries. How much an organization can benefit from innovation largely depends on how well innovation is managed in it. Thus, there is a discernible increase in interest in the study of innovation management. This handbook provides a comprehensive guide to this subject.
The handbook introduces the basic framework of innovation and innovation management. It also presents innovation management from the perspectives of strategy, organization and resource, as well as institution and culture. The book’s comprehensive coverage on all areas of innovation management makes this a very useful reference for anyone interested in the subject.
"Authors Chen, Brem, Viardot and Wong provide a thorough and useful survey of the innovation field. From specific technologies to organizational responses, scholars will find this an indispensable reference. There are also applications to innovation in emerging markets such as China. This book should find a home on every innovation scholar's bookshelf." — Professor Henry Chesbrough, Faculty Director, Garwood Center for Corporate Innovation, UC Berkeley-Haas School of Business
"A comprehensive, informative, and well-structured book. Hats off to Professor Poh Kam Wong and his colleagues for this excellent collection of chapters. There are indeed many books in innovation. However, what differentiates this book from all the others is its in-depth coverage of a wide range of innovation topics. The chapters are also written by renowned researchers from all around the world. It should be an excellent reference book for every innovation researcher and practitioner." — Professor Muammer Ozer, College of Business, City University of Hong Kong
"Innovation is critical to national and regional competitiveness and is strategic to the long-term success of firms and organizations. This edited volume has delineated the motivation and reasons to engage in innovation and the roadmap to manage innovation effectively and achieve innovation success. This book is a must-read for scholars, decision-makers and policymakers studying, managing and shaping innovation policy." — Professor Kenneth Huang, School of Business, National University of Singapore
"Today, innovation practices are changing in fundamental ways. For example, open and distributed innovation processes are emerging that both challenge and complement traditional, in-house development methods. This Handbook is a welcome compilation that updates innovation management research and practice to reflect and support these changes. Professor Chen Jin and his co-authors are to be congratulated on this very valuable new work!" — Eric von Hippel, T. Wilson Professor of Innovation Management, MIT Sloan School of Management
